Penn & Teller Return to Broadway This Summer‏

PENN & TELLER 

Return to Broadway 

Strictly limited six-week engagement at the Marquis Theatre

July 7 – August 16

Thirty years after their New York premiere and 40 years after they first started as a team, PENN & TELLER will return this summer for a strictly limited six-week engagement at the Marquis Theatre (46th Street between Broadway and 8th Avenue) from July 7 – August 16.

Tickets will go on sale on April 16th.

This will be a rare opportunity for New Yorkers and tourists to see Penn & Teller here; they will immediately return to their record-breaking Las Vegas run at The Rio at the end of the Broadway engagement. The Broadway engagement will include both elements of their Las Vegas show and classics from their repertoire.

About the return to Broadway, Penn Jillette said:

“When I was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, I felt I should have been in NYC, and when I moved there I was home. We loved being on Broadway. We love doing our show in Vegas, but even after all this time in Vegas . . . well, coming back to Broadway feels like we’re coming home. Our hearts never left. Do they make Elmo costumes in my size?”

PENN & TELLER made their stunning off-Broadway debut in 1985 and first played Broadway in 1987. Following a national tour, they returned to Broadway in 1991 with The Refrigerator Tour which then moved off-Broadway. Their last New York stage appearance was a week-long engagement at the Beacon Theatre in 2000. Their numerous honors include an Obie Award, an Emmy, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The New York Times has called them “a matchless team of self-mocking sorcerers” and called their show “an iconoclastic assault on the temple of magic.” WNEW-TV said “If there’s any justice they should rot in hell. Until then, see them.”

PENN & TELLER will be produced by Marc Routh, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel and Steve Baruch, the same team that produced their New York stage debut, and each of their subsequent Broadway and off-Broadway engagements, Penn & TellerPenn & Teller: The Refrigerator Tour; and Penn & Teller Rot in Hell.
